SUNY Cortland’s Marketing Office now offers a logo creation service for sport clubs. Work with a designer to develop a mark that represents your club and shows your Red Dragon Pride.
Requesting your new logo is easy.
You will see a proof of your logo and have the option to suggest revisions. Once finalized, you can use your logo for apparel, social media and other needs.
You can request one of these layouts with your club’s name.
If you do not see a pre-made option that suits your club, you can submit details for a fully custom logo in the request form.
Please follow these best practices to ensure consistent application of your sport club’s new logo.
Make sure the logo remains in proportion (not stretched or distorted) when resizing. For legibility, the minimum recommended height is 1”.
The logo shouldn’t be overwhelmed by other images or text. No other element should appear within a reasonable margin of the logo.
This is an example of acceptable clear space, with the black box representing text or an image.
In this example, the secondary element is too close to the logo.
Avoid modifying your logo in any way, including cropping, using elements separately, rotating or reversing, and adding graphic effects or filters.
Once received, the logo should not be edited. If you find you need a change to your logo (for example, your club’s name changes), please contact Reneé Novelli, senior visual media specialist. Requests for edits should be kept to a minimum.
When ordering shirts, jerseys and other apparel, submit your concept to Matt Nuesell, assistant director of recreational sports for intramural sports and sport clubs, for approval before ordering.
Other vendors may be used with approval from Matt Nuesell.
